Who will be the next CM of Gujarat?

Gandhinagar : In an unexpected political development, Vijay Rupani announced his resignation from the post of Chief Minister of Gujarat. On Saturday afternoon, he summitted his resignation to the governor.

After his unexpected move, many names are making the rounds as likely replacements of Rupani. Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandviya, Gujarat Deputy CM Nitin Patel and state cabinet minister RC Faldu are among the frontrunners, according to reports.

Besides, Gujarat BJP president CR Patil and state vice president Gordhan Zadafia have also emerged as top contenders for the post of Gujarat chief minister. Elections are scheduled in December 2022 to elect 182 members of the Gujarat Assembly.

Gujarat BJP in-charge said that the new CM for the state will be decided according to the party process. “Gujarat’s new Chief Minister will be decided according to the party process,” Bhupendra Yadav said. As per reports, the Gujarat MLAs will meet on Tuesday for picking the new chief minister.

Rupani (65) first became the chief minister on August 7, 2016, following the resignation of incumbent Anandiben Patel, and continued in the office after the BJP’s victory in the 2017 Assembly elections.
